OK. I know I already mentioned goalie Brent Johnson getting placed on waivers, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has some sad details: “Hopefully, another team claims me off waivers and it’s a fresh start for me. A different team, different surroundings — I think all that would be the best for me…I just didn’t do well here. I wish it would have been different.”
So does this mean Chris Osgood is entrenched in goal for the Blues? I sure hope so. The man gets no respect when he’s a fine goalie. Are there better NHL goalies? Sure. But Osgood is solid. He’s consistent. You don’t have to think about him. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
